The Listening Project
Now in its third year, the Milken Institute-Harris Poll Listening Project has been tracking the most urgent challenges people are facing globally. Among the twenty thousand global citizens we surveyed in 2021, we found that citizens mistrust many of the institutions in their countries yet respect business more strongly and expect them to fill the void of leadership in solving social challenges. They believe that business can bring new innovations, technologies, and partnerships to accelerate a recovery that is both expansive and more equitable.
This year, we delve deeper into the role of business in accelerating social progress by conducting a peer-to-peer survey of the Milken Institute Global Conference participants comprised of Fortune 500 executives, founders, investors, innovators, experts, and more. Our express purpose was to identify where our leaders, thinkers, and changemakers believe the world is headed, and how these leaders are responding to global challenges.
Leveraging robust learnings from two years of global research from the Milken Institute-Harris Poll’s Listening Project and new insights from the thought leaders of the Global Conference audience, this year’s report highlights business outlook and approaches to today’s most pressing needs such as geopolitical events, DEI, ESG, hybrid work, generational values, values and corporate culture.
The Milken Institute and The Harris Poll will announce results from the 2022 “The Listening Project” report during the opening plenary for the 25th Milken Institute Global Conference at 11:00 am ET on Monday, May 2.
